I just want to add a note that some women do feel a lot of pain with the transabdominal approach. I did, and I know of a couple of others, but it seems that we are the exception rather than the rule.

My baby is healthy! He is 9 months old. Because I was 37 the Doctors suggested I do the CVS test. It came back abnormal with Tetrapolidy. They told me my baby would not live because he had 92 chromosomes. They suggested I do the amino, it came back abnormal. Well, I had faith. . . and I have a healthy baby boy. Good thing I did not listen to the 'false positive' results. If you get bad news. . . remember it could be a 'false postive' like in my pregnancy. My prayers are with you.

TR, maybe just pass on the CVS. Yes you are older during this pregnancy, but if you are concerned about the level of skill/experience of your local doctors who would be doing the procedure and are worried about potential miscarriage,,,,then why put yourself through the stress? I suppose the answer depends how you would handle the outcome of the test....

Since I'm 40 this time around, I was really considering having the CVS done ... But, now, I'm getting very nervous about the risk of m/c. I have a 2.5 year old that wants me to carry him around ... shouldn't bed-rest & no lifting be advised after an invasive procedure like this?? And, for how long??
I'm probably gonna chicken out and just go with the Integrated Test first - if I rec'v. poor results from that, then ... ??? Anyone else have the CVS done? How was your experience? Also, a BIG part of my fears stem from living in a smaller area - I worry that the local docs may not have the experience with this that a doc in a major city would have, you know?? :(

Received my results from my CVS testing on yesterday this evening. The nurse said everything came back normal and that we are having a BOY!
